Snowmobiling is a great way to see New York State and enjoy some outdoor winter fun. From the Tug Hill region, across the Adirondacks and throughout western New York and the southern tier, NYS has over 10,000 miles of marked and groomed trails available. Riding a snowmobile can take you to places you might never see otherwise and with today’s modern sleds and equipment you can enjoy the experience in safety and comfort.

There are snowmobiling opportunities for everyone — from first-time snowmobilers to expert riders. It is also a wonderful way for people with physical disabilities to experience the snow and to climb a mountain ridge or two!

Many riders, who come to enjoy what New York State has to offer, take off in groups and explore the backcountry where there are well marked trails that take you to snow-covered valleys and scenic vistas.

So, why not consider joining a club today and learn more about the snowmobiling opportunities that exist throughout New York. For first timers there a number of rental locations and literally hundreds of places to stay and enjoy some winter hospitality.

The New York State Snowmobile Association is your best connection to the sport. We have clubs in almost every area, helpful information here on our website and a friendly and supportive staff to help you if needed.

Snowmobiling is a fun, healthy, recreational pastime that is enjoyed by tens of thousands of New Yorkers and out of state visitors every year…so, what are you waiting for??

Let’s hit the trails!
